Nothing is harder to do for a divorced woman than to have to wait on her ex and his current wife that he cheated on with while still being married to her. I pondered this story trying to think of what was meaningful to me. I wanted to listen to this a second time in order to grasp the full meaning. Yes, I did catch a lot of things the second time around that went over my head the first time. Jessie’s words and Jay’s talent with bringing those words to life are a plus. Derek and Rose started off with a fake relationship by mutual agreement initially because Rose lied about having a serious boyfriend. I appreciate the fact that Rose felt guilty with the lie and wanted to make it right and Derek wanted to help her. This is a great Christian principle that warrants a good example and this book by Jessie Gussman delivers. There are other examples in this book of the importance of living good Christian lives which are well spoken but not preachy. I love all the characters in this book. They are all well written and illustrate real life people. I can easily highly recommend any of Jessie Gussman’s works. I can never get enough of them.
Rose was working as a waitress and had just been fired from her job. Her ex fiance stopped by the restaurant where she had been working. Derek, her former fiance, was a rancher and in the process of acquiring the ranch his grandparents ran. They learn of a Dating Game run by a local quilt shop and somehow get roped into playing the game.Will this gaming venture push them back together or pull them apart forever? Read this sweet book and find out. I thoroughly enjoyed this book.
I loved this book by Jessie Gussman. Rose and Derek had both been married and both their ex spouses divorced them to marry the people they had been cheating with. When Rose and Derek started fake dating to cover a lie Rose told her ex and his wife, it quickly turned into real dating. They put God first and reaped their rewards. I highly recommend this book as a clean, Christian romance. This is the first book in the Coming Home to North Dakota Sweet Romance series but is a standalone with an introduction in the last chapter to the next book in the series. The characters are likeable and it is a great love story with a HEA ending.
Jessie Gussman has done it again! She gives her readers a wonderful love story! If you are interested in a book that incorporates the Gospel message in a story that has entertaining characters, intriguing story lines,and clean romance then this is a read for you.
I loved the inserts before each chapter and the wonderful Christian message in the book. YES I would recommend this book to everyone.
Enjoyed reading about Rose and Derek. They both had been cheated on in their first marriage. So when she needed his help he decided to help for the lie she had told. But in the end they decided the truth was better. They became friends and found what love was about.
